Questions & Reviews

12,000 BTU Portable Room Air Conditioner is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from If I could give it less than one star, I would. When I run the unit on "cool" mode, the relative humidity has gone up to 68% in the room that it is in. 82-84 degrees and 68% relative humidity is not comfortable. The rest of the house gets extremely uncomfortable with now even higher humidity levels and temperatures in the 90s. If I run the unit on "dry" mode, this is a little better, however, it does not remove too much condensate. The exhaust duct and the plastic window insert is very low (cheap) quality. Those pieces are not insulated which means extra heat in the room. The plastic window insert does not fit well in my particular window at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insulating exhaust hose helps This is our third summer with this AC, and it lowers the humidity and temperature well enough. We are using it between our living room and our dining room, and conducting the cold air to the living room using a stand fan. We found the exhaust hose very hot, so we wrapped it with 2 layers of aluminum foil, shiny side toward the hose, and it gives off barely any heat into the room. We bought a longer hose, which drains into the shower stall in a more distant room. Not beautiful, but it works, and we don't have to lift a heavy window unit into place any more. We store it in the same room over the cooler season, and it is quick and easy to set up. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh Been having one for about 6 but used it for only about 4 months and have had constant battles with the P1 error , i drain the water thinking its gonna come pouring out and only a few droplets come out now its about 100+ outside in Texas and the P1 error is still persistent even after draining multiple times Window A/C is way better than this don't even bother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for one room , not for small apartment. Purchased for bedroom on April 2019. After using this summer as of August 2019, have learned proper positioning, as it is on wheels.is important.Opening on top, where cool air comes out , needs to be adusted according to your needs(whether you need a direct or indirect flow of air.A.C. unit does not in my opinion come with proper materials to seal units exhaust hose and parts that attach it to your window. Personally have no problem with water that is expended from unit into my drip container. The most i have seen is 4 or 5 ounces and that evaporates soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best air conditioner ever. Even when it's 115 outside this unit keeps my whole second story nice and cool. Without the help of the central air unit and it's cheaper to use than central air unit. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor vent design, does not keep the room cool. Purchased this unit to cool a 500 sqft room. The room has no windows, but has two 6 foot patio doors. The air coming from the unit is cold. However, the unit does not keep the room cool. I've let the unit run overnight, it cooled the room until the sun hit the patio doors in the morning, then the temperature rises. The exhaust hose opening for the window adapter is oval, not round, and cannot be removed from the hose. The oval window vent does not have a screen to prevent inspects and small creatures from entering the hose, it has a grid that small creatures can easily climb through. In addition, the oval vent for the window is designed in a way that makes it very difficult to fabricate a face plate to mount through a wall. The window adapter is also designed in a way that makes non-window use impractical. Not impressed with this unit. So far I regret making this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works really well I love this room air conditioner the only down side I had with it is that when I first got it I had to drain water close to 10 different times within the first few hours of having it. Guess the humidity was to high because once night hit and it cooled down it was fine and haven’t had to do it since [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable air conditioner Easy to set up and it cools my kitchen in about 20 minutes. I liked it so much I purchased a second one for my bedroom. It has 3 cooling and fan modes, can easily be moved from one room to an other and is very quiet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
